"I first saw Adam Brody on The O.C as Seth Cohen and I love that character; I was so flattered when everybody started comparing Stiles to Seth Cohen. I was like ‘Oh, cool, that’s great!’ You can’t get a better comparison.”
The Maze Runner stars Dylan O’Brien and Will Poulter, director Wes Ball and author James Dashner answer hardcore fan questions from Twitter for CraveOnline.
When I tweeted that I was interviewing the stars, author and director of The Maze Runner movie at WonderCon, I got a lot of readers and fans tweeting me questions to ask them. It was a great way for me to approach The Maze Runner from a different perspective, especially since I hadn’t read the book. “Teen Wolf”‘s Dylan O’Brien plays Thomas, a teenager who wakes up in The Glade with no memory, and has to figure out how to escape a maze that keeps changing. Will Poulter plays Gally and Wes Ball directs the film of James Dashner’s book. I spoke with the four at WonderCon, with screenwriter T.S. Nowlin sitting on the side, and we got really specific. Spoiler alert for people who haven’t read the books yet, but especially the second question is something every reader asked. Even though I put [SPOILER] in place of all the specifics, you could still figure it out, but if you read my Twitter feed you’d see all the readers asking already.
CraveOnline: When the MTV Movie Awards nominated Best Character, fandoms between Divergent and Hunger Games were fighting. How can all the fandoms get along?
Dylan O’Brien: Oh God, yeah, what the hell?
Wes Ball: They can. They just need to.
James Dashner: I honestly think my book fandom, the Dashner Army what we call them, they take a lot of pride that they don’t go the route of always complaining, always being negative and putting down.
Wes Ball: I’ve got to say, our fans are really positive. They’re really supportive and positive.
Dylan O’Brien: They’re sweet.
Wes Ball: I think I’m getting spoiled now from this fandom.
James Dashner: There’s something special about them.
Will Poulter: And they’ve been that way.
Wes Ball: So maybe it’ll be the Maze Runner fans that join the Factions and the Arena from Hunger Games.
Wes Ball: That was actually my thing too. I initially was going to cast 16-year-olds. It wouldn’t happen. There was no way that would’ve happened, so basically I found you guys with young faces.
Dylan O’Brien: Right, right, it works, it works. [x]
How much sleep did you all get making this movie?
Dylan O’Brien: A total of 30 hours.
Will Poulter: Zero and zero. I actually got a little bit of sleep. We were okay, right?
Dylan O’Brien: Honestly, me and Wes probably slept the least but I at least got my 20 hour sleep Saturdays. Wes kept going, man. He was scouting. [x]
